Rhyl & Woody’s Lodge remembers D Day

News from North Wales

To mark the 75th anniversary of the Second World War operation volunteers from Rhyl’s schools, the Rhyl Royal British Legion and our team & volunteers from Woody’s Lodge in North Wales were hard at work from 6am on Thursday morning preparing a variety of tributes!

As part of the day’s tributes, silhouettes representing fallen servicemen were set in the sand of Rhyl beach. Dyserth veteran and chainsaw artist Ian Murray unveiled a new ‘Tommy’ statue carved in timber, created especially for the occasion.

In addition to the memorials, wreaths have been laid at the Tommy statue, plus there was an appearance from a military piper!

Also taking place yesterday to commerate D Day was a Commemoration service and an act of remembrance led by Reverend Paul Robinson of the United Church, a two minute silence and an Exhortation by Rhyl RBL chairman Keith Browne.
